Trip to Salisbury returning via Lyndhurst
Excursion to the interesting medieval city of Salisbury, the town's highlight is undoubtedly the Cathedral, with Britain’s tallest spire and housing an original version of the Magna Carta. Just outside the city, easily accessed by bus is Old Sarum, the original settlement here and a fascinating insight into the ancient history of the region. On our return journey to Bournemouth we’ll call at Lyndhurst, often referred to as the 'capital' of the New Forest.
Trip to Winchester
Winchester has a long and varied history, dating back to pre-Roman Britain over 2000 years ago. For a relatively small city it has a multitude of interesting visitor attractions and historical sites. Winchester Cathedral is the main point of interest, nearly 1000 years old and a great example of Norman architecture. The Great Hall is the only remaining part of the castle that once occupied the town and contains what is reputed to be King Arthur’s round table. The ancient city centre has numerous overhanging buildings dating back to medieval times, with the Pentice and Butter Cross, central to this area. In general, walking around anywhere in this historic city you’re sure to find something to pique your interest.
